    I really appreciated the variety perspective's of volume 1. I had an education that, rightfully or wrongfully, was very rooted in European theologies of a certain bent, with limited exposure to global perspectives. This volume seemed to lack some of that breadth (save for some exploration of interfaith perspectives on revelation and the nature of God). Also, the discussion on Panenthism threw me for a loop. Nevertheless, I look forward to volume 3. Edit: In the weeks since finishing this book, I' I really appreciated the variety perspective's of volume 1.

Nevertheless, I look forward to volume 3. Edit: In the weeks since finishing this book, I've come back in my mind to the section on inter-faith dialogue and hospitality. I've been wondering what agendas or motivations underlay our own inter-faith endeavors, and whether or not they live into a spirit of meeting others as they and where they are. For that ongoing challenge to my own practice, I am thankful.

    Haven't read it to the end, but only the chapters on natural theology and its engagement with natural theology. Overall it is a great and fresh book. Unfortunately the writing style seems like a barrage of quotations. Karkkainen would do very well if he could paraphrase all the quotations he provided. Nevertheless, it is a wonderful book and needs to be read by anyone interested in contextual theology for the world today.
